It was a rough spring for Julie Yager's business, A New Face, and for the home she shares with her husband, Kim, the Sugar Creek Campground near Crawfordsville.

When the worst flood of in a century hit, not only did it place the campground's campers in danger, it flooded the building used by Julie for her spa, A New Face.

She was out of business and had to tell clients she was sorry but she could not serve them at the campground until her building was rebuilt.

Then, a marvelous thing occurred. People came out of the woodwork (in a manner of speaking) and helped clean up the campground and helped the owners get back on track.

I visited the campground last week and found things to be very different than on the Sunday afternoon I visited following the flood.

The roads are repaired, campers are once again setting where they should be setting on their lots and on Friday, Julie called with the good news her building is on its way to completion.

Currently, she is temporarily located in the Hairport on South Washington Street in Crawfordsville.

"Larry (Wright, owner of the Hairport) has been so great to let me use a room here," she said with a big smile on her face.

Now she is in the process of letting her clients know she will return to the campground but for now they can make an appointment to see her at the Hairport.

Julie said she is deeply thankful to everyone who has come their assistance following the flood.
